Event description

Description

*This event is now full! Those that have already registered will receive materials in the week prior to the event*




Over the past few years, the success of students with non-traditional entry qualifications at university has been at the forefront of research and interventions on transition.

This symposium aims to bring together university, college and school staff to share collaborative approaches to transition support that are being piloted in response to the increasingly diverse student body entering higher education.

The symposium will be of interest to:

  • Staff working in the field of transition, success and progression in HE

  • Academic staff working with students holding a BTEC qualification

  • Staff working in widening participation and outreach

  • Staff from Further Education colleges and schools interested in bridging transition into higher education for their students

Places are allocated on a first come, first served basis and there is limited availability.
